Espen Sommer Eide

Espen Sommer Eide is a musician and artist based in Bergen, Norway. Since the late 1990s his musical projects Alog (with Dag-Are Haugan) and Phonophani have been among the most prominent representatives of experimental electronic music from Norway, with a string of releases on the label Rune Grammofon. Live he uses elaborate setups of custom made instruments, hybrids combining electronic and acoustic elements. As an artist, Eide works with subjects concerning language, history, science, and philosophy, often with sound and music as a central element. These projects include a multi-channel piece for the 50-year anniversary of Le Corbusier’s chapel in Ronchamp, France, a special "Building Instruments" performance at the 2008 Manifesta biennial, and a series of art and archive projects with various topics connected to the Barents and arctic regions of Northern Norway, under the heading of "rural reading.” Eide is also a member of the theatre/art-collective Verdensteatret.

He has had solo presentations at Performa 13 in New York, Bergen Kunsthall, and the Eastern Sami Museum in Neiden, among other institutions.
